Public and Transportation Facilities >> Sendai Airport Terminal


Sendai Airport Terminal Building is the first terminal building designated for implementing a law called "Heart Building Act" to provide barrier-free access to elderly and handicapped people.

Letter sizes for signage were made bigger. Such combinations of colors that are not distinguishable to some people were not used, but a high contrast in design was emphasized.

For example, conventional signage for arrival and departure was not used, but pictorial symbols familiar to everybody such as those for toilets were used.

These techniques may not necessarily work for other airports or regions, but were employed here in coordination with overall architectural planning, taking account of the site condition.
