Building a pack of cards.... Foundation? What is that?

“Twelve people have been found dead so far after City Light hotel collapsed early this morning, we are still trying to clear the rubble and rescue anyone alive,” local police official K Satyanarayana said. - SCMP

At least in this case building was old. Just think about the numerous residential complexes - mainly two to five stories - coming up like mushrooms in rain in many Indian cities. Many of them don't even have anything to call a good foundation!!! If there is a small earthquake, everything will come down as pack of cards...
