The Dubai Frame Concept

Dubai Frame

It is a rectangular structure that’s constructed using two monumental towers, making Dubai Frame height 150 meters high and 93 meters wide. These two towers are linked by a 100-square-meter bridge, which forms the top portion of the frame. The space between the towers literally ‘frames’ the city from a high altitude, creating an unbelievably rich picture that will stay in your memory forever. To the north are great views of Old Dubai, including Dubai Creek, Bur Dubai and Deira, Karama, and Umm Hurair areas. To the south, there’s New Dubai with all its incredible landmarks. This astonishing picture frame is meant to bridge the past and the present—in this sense, between Old Dubai and New Dubai.
