Espace Oscar-Niemeyer-Le Volcan

Also known as "Le Volcan Scène Nationale", this cultural centre (part of André Malraux's Maison de la Culture initiative) was created in 1961 and entrusted to Reynold Arnould, then curator of the museums of Le Havre. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the space is made up of two curved white concrete masses that are accessible via a series of sloped walkways.
