Dubai seems to be racing with time in order to retain its luxury, magnificence, vastness and generally everything that has remained unsurpassed so far. We are talking about the architectural whims of one of the most cosmopolitan cities on the planet.

Quite recently, we told you about how far Abu Dhabi went with the construction of a more than impressive futuristic complex which is going to house some of the most exquisite works of art that human history knows. Now, it’s Dubai’s turn. As though the two emirates are competing which one will display more wealth, investing billions into the construction of curious, unusual and often inexplicable architectural creations.

The Dubai Frame was officially open to the general public at the very beginning of 2018. It is said to be the new emblem of the exotic city and promises to be as popular as the other impressive symbols of the eastern oasis like BurjKhalifa, Burj Al Arab and the Dubai Aquarium.

The idea behind the Dubai Frame is much more than just the next shiny giant that can be seen from afar. On the inside, the two towers, reaching the height of 150 m, are going to tell the visitor about the past, present and future of the megalopolis. At the very top between the two ends, there is a 25-metre panoramic platform with a glass floor that boasts a 360-degree overview and literally takes your breath away. Because all this has been achieved in less than a century within the boundaries of what is otherwise a desert. And at the end of their travel through the history of Dubai, visitors are going to see what is about to happen to this place in the next 50 years.

The Dubai Frame was designed by Fernando Donis. He is also the creator of Porsche Design Towers and Dubai Renaissance Tower. The Frame’s exterior is inspired by the Expo 2020 logo.

They know how to impress in Dubai. And if you still haven’t let them do this to you, then now is the time.

They are connected by a 93 metre long bridge. On one side, the towers and bridge frame the buildings on Shaikh Zayed Road, denoting ‘modern Dubai, while the other side includes views of Deira, Umm Hurair and Karama, symbolising ‘old Dubai’. The ground floor has a museum that tells the story of the development of Dubai, with presentations spanning decades of city development. These presentations are immersive experiences themselves with 3D technology and imagery. The main highlight is the Sky Deck which gives uninterrupted views of the entire city, both old and new.
