DUBAI 12 May 2019: Which is the latest Dubai landmark that has won an entry into the Guinness Book of World Records?
It is the Dubai Frame.
“Dubai achieves a world record as the largest frame in the world, according to the Guinness World record,” said a tweet from the Dubai Government Media Office.
Dawoud Al Hajri, Director-General of Dubai Municipality, said, “We are proud to have implemented this aesthetic icon and urban architectural landmark. The Frame highlights the high quality of the city as well as its past status and ambitious aspirations and showcases the visions of our wise leadership.”
The Guinness award recognises this monumental architectural masterpiece and its importance in framing the fascinating views of old and modern Dubai within a single frame, and being a tangible link between the memorable past and the flourishing present of the city. It provides panoramic pictures of the entire city of Dubai to tell its story over time since its inception and the implementation of its ambitious plans for a prosperous future. Dubai Frame is a unique global architectural achievement, with a height of 150.24 meters and a width of 95.53 meters, said Wam.
The space between the two towers gives a pretty clear view for the city from a high altitude to serve as an architectural masterpiece decorating Zabeel area and Zabeel Park. The mezzanine floor of the tower includes a museum that tells the story of the development of the city using the latest means of presentation, which ends with a panoramic elevator to rise through the ribs to reach the upper floor. The upper horizontal rib, designed with glass floors as well as glass facades, allows visitors to enjoy the city of Dubai from all sides.
