How do you build a safe earthquake building?

To be earthquake proof, buildings, structures and their foundations need to be built to be resistant to sideways loads. The lighter the building is, the less the loads. This is particularly so when the weight is higher up. Where possible the roof should be of light-weight material. For more info check the link.

Which can with stand an earthquake high rise steal frame hotel built on sediment or wood frame house built on bed rock?

There can be no earthquake proof building. To build such a structure would be prohibitively expensive.In the recent Christchurch earthquake, the peak ground acceleration was over 2 g. To design for this is not economically feasible.And as the question suggests, the survival of a building/structure is a property of both the structure itself, and the ground on which it stands.
