Maybe you have seen the foundation details that F.L.Wright made  for his hotel project in Japan? Heard a lot about this detail but never saw a good drawing of it  (or the original) or a good reference in books about F.L.Wright.
....is suposed to be made with tire and "train" rail beam to allow sliding of the building..

Warm wishes, valentina
