Maurer United Architects designed iconic sculptures for City of Heerlen year theme M2015, that was organized to recollect the closing of the local mining industry fifty years ago. The hyperbolic structures were made of wooden planks. The colors represent the flags of the ten nationalities of former mineworkers in this area. The sculptures are located at the terrain of demolished mining shaft EMMA, where the cooling towers were actually invented and built by Van Iterson during the mining activities.
