It is high time to peek into the snapshot of this city
The Dubai Frame:
The Dubai frame now becomes the new golden landmark of the city. Renowned as the world’s largest picture frame and now hits top in the list of the global attraction. Let’s get into the new face of the Dubai!
The frame measures 150 m high and 93mm wide. Two giant towers are connected by a 100sq.m bridge which has 25sq.m glass panel in the middle giving us a breath taking view.
Over 15,000sq.m of gold cladding was used to cover the exterior of the Dubai frame. Each panel is a stainless sheet, coated with titanium nitrate, to create a thin film of gold colouring on the surface, and hence referred to as the “golden landmark of Dubai”.
The frame welcome its visitors with a fountain set up, leading them towards the museum that will showcase Dubai transformation from a small fishing village to a miraculously developed city.
OLD is GOLD:
The golden moments of the Dubai projected here takes its visitors to the ancient Dubai where we can see Dubai old souk, people, and their occupation. Leading to the elevator and brings an eagerness to enjoy the best view of spectacular skyline showing both old and new Dubai simultaneously.
Left side representing old Dubai (Umm Hurair, Al Karama, Deira, Bur Dubai) surprises visitors to see where the word ‘OLD’ is. The buildings in old Dubai are no more than of 3-4 storeys which are referred to as heart and soul of Dubai.
The Modern Dubai:
Moving on to the right side, the new Dubai is standing with the ultra-modern infrastructure that includes the world’s tallest building,”Burj Khalifa“, world’s largest shopping, entertainment and leisure destination “THE DUBAI MALL” and so on. This view is no less than one seen in some advanced future based movie.
360 Degree View:
The most important and breath taking view is walking in the centre of the bridge which is made of glass panels to look like they are cracking under people’s feet. Crossing this panel gives people a stunning look of raft foundation of the frame structure and parts of Zabeel park underneath as we walk over the glass.
Large prisms on the wall adds up some fun for visitors as what we write on the small glass screen in front of them appears as digital graffiti on the prisms.
