How Will Tall Buildings React in the Big One?

We're improving the SPUR event registration process.
Later this summer, we will launch a new ticketing system and we'll be asking you to register for each event you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes and better tailor our schedules and offerings.


San Francisco has recently completed the Tall Buildings Safety Strategy, a first-of-its-kind, in-depth study of all buildings 240 feet in height — 156 of them. The strategy is just one of many innovative programs and initiatives geared to improve the city’s preparedness and ability to recover in the event of a major earthquake. Join us to learn about its key recommendations and San Francisco's efforts to strengthen the integrity and resilience of the city’s infrastructure, neighborhoods and residents.
