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.
