The Porte Océane is located at the western end of the tramway of Le Havre facing the seashore. Arranged symmetrically on either side of Avenue Foch the building complex forms a gateway to the sea. It was designed by Auguste Perret and completed in 1956.

Following the central axis of these buildings, a white rectangular construction rises from the beach. 

The 10m-high sculpture emerges like giant clamps etched against the sky and forming a second gate towards the ocean. Monumental yet graceful, gleaming white with no discernible surface structure, the sculpture strikes a delicate balance between familiar object and absurd construction.
