Topic: Which type of soil and foundation is recommended for protection of building in earth quake zones?

i have a course work and iam confused about which type of foundation i should use, the soil below the building consists of three layers. the first layer "about 4.5m": topsoil over firm orange brown sandy clay with occasional fine to coarse gravels of quartz and rare brick. Second layer "2.3 to 2.9m": firm orange brown to red brown slightly gravelly Clay. Third layer "proven to 20.5m": very weak to moderately weak reddish brown weathered Mudstone with interbedded units of red brown partially weathered sandstone. the building is steel structure, so which type of foundation i should use "pad or pieling
