Programming Like most contemporary airports, the Tohoku spaceport has a landside, an intermediate transition space and a secured spaceside. In diagram, the circulation between the programmed spaces are generally orgazined into a closed loop with departures going in, and arrivals coming out. The ticketing space is primarily intended for customer service, as very little ticketing will be done in person in the future. Security has been given a much smaller space due to advanced biometric screening of the near future. Some of the smaller programmed spaces such as food and restrooms are scattered throughout, but are intended to be grouped and tucked away, to allow the larger spaces to dominate the experience. Back of the house programs like administration and some immigration offices are completely obscured to the traveler.
