To this end, it first discusses about the connotation and characteristics of marine culture, and offshore architectural art. Then, taking the offshore urban square as an example, the case analysis method was used to analyze the performance of marine culture in offshore architectural art. The research results show that marine culture involves all aspects and fields of social life; the boat houses of Li minority in Hainan is one of the buildings that were earlier affected by marine culture; with the development of the times, marine cultural elements have been more integrated into offshore urban architecture, such as the Sydney Opera House and the National Maritime Museum of China; marine elements such as marine animals, ships, and sails are widely used in landscape sketches of urban square, and have both practical and spiritual functions; offshore urban squares usually reflect the marine cultural characteristics of offshore cities through road paving with different materials and colors and beautiful line designs, which give strong visual effects, and play a role in guiding and dividing space; marine culture is the cultural foundation of the economics, beauty, practicality, and regionality for the garden square in the offshore city..
