In 1996, F. Jörg Haberland, Jo Kley and Ben Siebenrock won the competition for an art project in collaboration with the recycling company Glindemann.
The project uses recycled materials according to the tender.
The overall concept of the "amphitheater" came from Ben Siebenrock.
In addition to entire earth shifts, the following materials are used: Lusatian granite blocks from the old Holtenau high bridge (Haberland), steel girders from the former Holsten brewery in Kiel (Kley), boulders (Siebenrock) and, for the entire ensemble, demolition granulate from various buildings.
Haberland's "Four Elements" - into the fire, into the water, into the air and into the earth- refer directly to the influences of our environment on us and, above all, vice versa.
