WHAT ABOUT THIS IDEA?
One of my readers, Bayram Yıldızoğlu, is the head of this company, which makes a wall-coating, like a wallpaper, that reduces the risk of building collapse in an earthquake. I don't know much about this idea, but find it interesting. Does this idea really have the potential to mitigate risk in neighborhoods where proper retrofitting is not economically or politically feasible? I'd be curious to know what people who would be in a better position than me to evaluate this think.
