A. Otero & C. Molina Hutt
In an effort to mitigate a considerable housing deficit, the Venezuelan government has constructed many housing development projects using mass production techniques. Most of the developments are in cities with high seismic hazard. The structural system in these buildings consists of reinforced concrete shear walls.
