Creating a balanced and symmetrical structure, ensuring a continuous load path from the roof to the foundation, avoiding soft or weak stories, and designing for ductility and energy dissipation are all seismic-resistant design principles. Other important principles may include the use of appropriate materials, the detailing of connections and joints, and the consideration of soil-structure interaction effects.
