Faiza, Please look at the section "conflict and natural disasters". You will see that quite a few people including myself have an interest in designing and building safely in earthquake areas.

look into the IAEE guidelines www.iaee.or.jp.
But you can build with many materials, provided one adds elements giving tension and bending strength.

Have a look at the web site below.

http://www.world-housing.net/

It has lots of seismic related stuff and information about lots of construction from countries affected by earthquakes.
