Dubai Adds the World’s Largest Picture-Frame to its Skyline


Dubai adds another superlative to the list this week: it can now admire all its world record-breaking trophies through the biggest picture frame on the planet.

Rising 150 metres above Zabeel Park, the Dubai Frame has a 93-metre long viewing gallery at the top of the frame, where people can walk along a glass-floored walkway and enjoy views of the city.

A neon-lit 'vortex' tunnel then transports visitors to an interactive exhibition on the future of Dubai, with augmented reality displays offering glimpses of the UAE 50 years from now

  • The frame measures 150 metres high and 93 metres wide.

  • The two towers are connected by a 100-square-metre bridge, which has a 25-square-metre glass panel in the middle offering a great 360 degree view.

  • It was designed by award-winning architect Fernando Donis, who also designed Dubai’s Porsche Design Towers, and the Dubai Renaissance Tower.

  • Exterior design of Dubai Frame was inspired from the logo of Expo 2020.

  • There is a museum on the ground floor that will showcase Dubai’s transformation from fishing village to metropolis.

  • It is predicted the frame will become a major tourist destination in the city, like the Burj Khalifa and the Burj Al Arab.

  • The project is worth Dhs160 million.
