Building on rubber to make homes more earthquake-resilient

from Forbes

As in most nations formed near fault lines, earthquakes are seen as a part of life in New Zealand, and they are weaved into the indigenous mythology of the islands. Rūaumoko, a Māori god, is said to cause the rumbling of quakes and the hiss of volcanic activity as he moves below the earth. Māori have recorded multiple large-scale earthquakes throughout their oral history, including one at Rotorua said to have claimed the lives of 1,000 people. more
