We show how complex, three-dimensional modes of vibration of an irregular building can be identified
by ambient vibration measurements. We present two-dimensional cross-sections of the three-dimensional
mode shapes and describe a measuring strategy for identifying the building properties when the excitation consists of nonstationary microtremors and short and weak wind bursts. We employ cross-correlations of
measured accelerations to identify predominance of excitation by microtremors (causing wave propagation
from ground up into the building), or by weak bursts of wind (wave propagation within the building and
down towards the foundation). We describe two lowest frequencies of vibration at 10.5 Hz and at 11.9 Hz
and their mode shapes.
