THE DUBAI FRAME: New perspective of a modern metropolis

When in Dubai, perhaps the only word you can utter every now and then is … WOW! 

That is because the magnificence of modern architecture can be seen almost everywhere, from its signature 7* Burj Al Arab and first-class hotels to the highest skyscraper in the world 'Burj Khalifa'. Yet, another impressive monument called 'the Dubai Frame' (literally looks like a picture frame) was opened to public on the first day of 2018. 

The colossal landmark is strategically positioned at the heart of Zabeel Park. It represents the 'new perspective of the city'. Proudly standing tall at 150 meters, and 93 meters wide, the frame with two towers is connected by a 100-square-meter bridge that has a glass panel in the middle where visitors can get a 360-degree view of the city. Looking south from the tower is the sight of New Dubai which features the Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa, sky scrapers and tall structures.   From the opposite side you can see the whole picture of Old Dubai (which includes Karama, Bur Dubai and other historical sites).

In addition, the Dhs160 million project includes a museum on the ground floor that showcases Dubai’s journey through time.

The infrastructure was designed by the award-winning architect Fernando Donis (who also drafted the Dubai's Porsche Tower, and Dubai Renaissance Tower) and the exterior layout was inspired by the logo of EXPO 2020.

Touring around the Dubai Frame is limited to a group of 200 people per hour.
