Dubai Frame is a building in Al Kifaf, Za'abeel, Bur Dubai, Dubai.
Additional information
  • The Dubai Frame is a 150-metre high by 93-metre wide structure built to look like a huge picture frame. It is located in Zabeel Park, between the ‘old Dubai’ and the ‘new Dubai’. The idea is that if you look through it one way you see into the past; look through it the other way and you see into the future.

  • In reality it’s a giant viewing platform from which you can see the Emirates Towers, Burj Khalifa and anything else that rises into the sky.

  • The bridge at the top of the Frame has a 25 square metre glass floor panel in the middle so that you can get a vertiginous view of the park below.

  • The Frame was designed by architect Fernando Donis, who also designed Dubai’s Porsche Design Towers and the Dubai Renaissance Tower.

  • A museum on the ground floor showcases Dubai’s transformation from fishing village to metropolis.
