Dubai Frame set to open to public

Graphic News

November 30, 2017 -- The Dubai Frame is a $43.5m feat of engineering, a building at ground level linking two towers 150m (492ft) high with an observation deck linking the top of the towers to form a huge “picture frame”.

The frame is positioned so that if you look through it one way you see representative landmarks of modern Dubai, and if you look the other way you view parts of the old city.

The project was conceived by Fernando Donis for a competition to design a “Tall Emblem Structure for Dubai”. As the city was already full of emblems he decided that rather than build another, they should all be framed.

The height of the Dubai frame is similar to that of the London Eye (135m), and about half that of the Eiffel Tower, Paris (300m) or the Shard, London (310m to the tip). The tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, Dubai, is 828m high.
