Abstract: In the fast-paced contemporary world, new inventions with rapid construction techniques came across usually built to resist the lateral forces. Among them, the demand for tall buildings has put a revolutionary impact on society. In this study, base isolation as an earthquake resisting design technique was utilized which substantially dissociate a superstructure from its substructure and increase flexibility resisting on the ground vibration areas by providing the different types of base isolators. Lead rubber bearing (LRB) isolator is a passive structural vibration control technique. In this research study, seismic behaviour of tube in tube system steel tall building in square, circular, hexagonal, and octagonal plan configurations with varying frame sections with and without LRB base isolation was analyzed for the comparative analysis on the basis of base shear, overturning moment, time period, storey displacement, storey drift and storey acceleration according to IS 1893 (part 1):2016 and UBC 1997 Earthquake code in E-TABS software by non-linear time history analysis. From the results, Octagonal shape was found to be the best option for tall buildings whereas the hexagonal shaped building showed poor performance during an earthquake.
