1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- the catastrophic collapse of 1.2 miles of the Cypress Viaduct through Oakland, took 45 lives in the Loma Prieta earthquake -- this structure, built in the 1950s was designed to state-of -the-art at that time -- site issues
Laclede's landing redevelopment, St. Louis, Missouri by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- street in downtown St. Louis, Missouri -- redevelopment, densification and "gentrification" without seismic strengthening actually increased the risk to the community -- site issues
Title slide: Planning issues: fault zoning, seismic zonation, siting considerations, hazardous buildings, lifeline residual capacity, urban design criteria by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- title slide: Planning issues -- city and regional planning tools can have an impact on the seismic risk posed to a structure -- through fault zoning, seismic zonation, site planning, hazardous building abatement, developing lifeline residual capacity and the use of urban design criteria, planning can help to mitigate the risk posed by the earthquake threat -- site issues
Title slide: Gound fault rupture by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- title slide: Ground fault rupture - introducing part one of the second group of "site issues" slides
Title slide: Earthquake effects: where does the site begin? by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- title slide: Earthquake effects: Where does the site begin? introducing slides dealing with the first part of "site issues."
Title slide: Earthquake effects: ground faulting, ground shaking, ground failure, Tsunami by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- title slide: Earthquake effects: Ground faulting, ground shaking, ground failure, Tsunami - introducing the second group of "site issues" slides
Title slide: Fault zone: development options by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- title slide: Fault zone: development options -- where active faults are mapped, development options can range from absolute prohibitions on development to permitting unrestricted development -- site issues
Pacific Garden Mall, Santa Cruz, California, 1989 by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- unreinforced masonry commercial buildings fronting the mall were devastated by the Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989 -- in 1987 the City of Santa Cruz completed an urban beautification program for the Pacific Garden Mall, the old central business district -- painting, landscaping, lighting and seating areas were added, but a decision was made not to require seismic strenthening of the structures -- site issues
Title slide: Summary: siting considerations: site geology, access, adjacency, lifeline capacity by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- title slide: summary: siting considerations: site geology, access, adjacency, lifeline capacity -- site issues
Title slide: Tsunami, Seiche, dam failure by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- title slide: Tsunami -- earthquakes can trigger tidal waves (tsunami) or trigger failure of dams -- site issues
Marina district apartments, San Francisco by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- exterior general view of damaged apartments in the Marina district in San Francisco -- much building damage in earthquakes is due to mistakes in the architectural concept -- the example shown illustrates a soft first story which seriously weakened the ability of the building to resist lateral forces and led to near collapse -- "building configuration: the architecture of seismic design."
Title slide: Urban design criteria: density versus risk, adjacency, setback, open space for refuge, evacuation, fire barriers by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- title slide -- increasing the population density in older structures through redevelopment may be good community economic development, but it will increase the risk to the public if seismic strengthening is not undertaken -- urban design tools can reduce the risks posed by redevelopment of older structures -- before older unreinforced masonry structures are utilized for higher density residential or commercial uses, strategies should be developed to require seismic retrofit and the creation of areas of refuge for pedestrians -- site issues
Aerial view of Oakland, California by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- aerial view -- Oakland, California -- in an urbanized area, are greater and lesser seismic risk -- sites along estuaries or on softfill soils and those areas adjacent to active faults, may experience more violent ground shaking -- unstable slopes may fail -- liquefiable soils may subside or spread -- seismic zonation (micro zonation) is a planning tool to identify relative risk within a region, and to establish mitigation criteria to reduce exposure to losses -- site issues
East approach to the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge, 1989 by Richard Eisner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special set -- architecture -- photograph -- eastern approach to the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge, from the inclined section to the bottom left corner of the slide, liquefied, subsided six inches and spread laterally to shatter the pavement -- local damage to the approach had severe impact regionally, requiring the rerouting of 250,000 vehicles for one month -- site issues
