Pavilion "Ascension" has a height of 13 meters and a total area of more than forty meters. It is made of modular aluminum panels and panels of white fabric stretched over a wire frame. Acting as an art installation, the pavilion is one of the feature attractions at the site of the festival and a popular meeting place for visitors.
