Since the early ages of human existence on Earth, humans have fought against natural hazards for survival. Over time, the most dangerous hazards humanity has faced are earthquakes and strong winds. Since then and till nowadays, the challenges are ongoing to construct higher buildings that can withstand the forces of nature. This paper is a detailed review of various vibration control strategies used to enhance the dynamical response of high-rise buildings. Hence, different control strategies studied and used in civil engineering are presented with illustrations of real applications if existing. The main aim of this review paper is to provide a reference-rich document for all the contributors to the vibration control of structures. This paper will clarify the applicability of specific control strategies for high-rise buildings. It is worth noting that not all the studied and investigated methods are applicable to high-rise buildings; a few of them remain limited by many parameters such as cost-effectiveness and engineering-wise installation and maintenance.
