Earthquake Engineering LAX Observation Deck

This unique project uses a 1.2 million pound Tune Mass Damper design for Earthquake protection. The Tune Mass Damper is made up of Lead Rubber Bearing (DIS LRB Bearings), 8 Fluid Viscous Dampers (Taylor Devices) and 132 steel plates. This design not only addressed the earthquake protection requirements, provides the most cost effective solution, it also allowed design freedom with no alterations to its iconic appearance.
