Photographer's Note

I know that the photo is of poor quality, I made it from the moving minibus, but it is a quite new attraction in Dubai and I am glad that I saw it and can share it with you. Maybe someone will visit Dubai, then it is a hint what to see.

The Dubai Frame is an architectural landmark in Zabeel Park, Dubai. It has been described The Guardian newspaper as "the biggest picture frame on the planet", however is also controversial as the "biggest stolen building of all time".

The project was conceived by Fernando Donis and selected as the winner of a design competition by the Government of Dubai. It is alleged that the designer had his intellectual property stolen and was denied credit for the design.

Placed adjacent to Star Gate in Zabeel Park, this rectangular structure is made up of two vertical towers of 150 meters high and 93 meters wide, which are further linked by a 100-square-meter bridge. Begin your Dubai Frame experience from the ground floor or the structure’s horizontal section. Main highlight here is a museum and gallery; it uses the most advanced technology, along with an array of exhibits, to fascinatingly throw light on Dubai’s transformation from a quaint fishing village to an astounding global city.

The Dubai Frame is created out of glass, steel, aluminum, and reinforced concrete. It is positioned in such a way that representative landmarks of modern Dubai can be seen on one side, while from the other side, visitors can as well view older parts of the city.

The Frame opened in January 2018.

I found it awesome and imagine what possibilities for fantastic pictures it gives, outside and inside.

One can go inside, also in the gallery on top of it. Who knows, Maybe I will have a stopover another time?
