Originally named Entrance to sports park Ookmeer the sculpture is located at Troelstralaan, Amsterdam-Osdorp. For the design of this construction Constant used geometry from Diorama [II], 1962.

In 2011 Rita Doets, a former employee of district nieuw-west, left money in her will to bring the sculpture out of it anonimous state. On 21 July 2011 (Constant's birthday) a plate with information about the sculpture and its designer was revealed. With that plate the sculpture was renamed De Poort van Constant.
