Today, the "Acier" is located in the water near the Casino de Montréal (formerly the Québec Pavilion), on Île Notre-Dame.

Designed by Pierre Heyvaert during Expo 67. The artist was commissioned to create this sculpture to represent the three main themes of the Québec Pavilion, which were: challenge, combat and momentum. The shapes and volumes are multiplied by the effects of the reflections in the water, giving the illusion of movement.
