Dubai Frame, Dubai Overview

One of the most recent megaprojects of Dubai launched in January 2018, the Dubai Frame is the world's largest frame structure inspired by the logo of the upcoming World Expo 2020 which is to be held in the city. Located in Zabeel Park, it acts as a frame to some of the greatest architectural marvels of Dubai including the Burj Khalifa. It is flanked by two high-rise towers that go up to 150 meters and are connected by a Sky Deck which has a breadth of 93 meters acts as a top member of the frame structure.

If observed closely, the frame acts as a bridge between Dubai's past and present overlooking two perspectives - the old districts of Dubai from the North and the modern cityscape looking South. From Deira’s Old Town to the Dubai Marina, one gets to witness a panoramic view of all of Dubai through the frame. Engineered with splendid architecture, the sky deck is made with a walk-over, crack-proof, crystal-clear glass panel that turns from haze to clear glass once stepped on. The frame bears different levels with various attractions like the Old Dubai Gallery and a piece of modern art at the Mezzanine level; the present Dubai gallery at the sky deck offering exhilarating city views, and finally the future Dubai gallery with multimedia illustrations unveiling the city in the near future. One can witness the splendid sunset from the frame during the day which is unmissable.
