Controlled access into the plaza and beyond was achieved through a series of turnstiles and sensor barriers, with ticket scanning technology managing access permissions. Other innovative features included sensor airlocks for disabled visitors and custom-made turnstiles to fit with the aesthetic of the concert hall entrances.
