The much-awaited Dubai Frame will be open on 1st January 2018. But recently, the iconic structure opened its doors to a very special guest: the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
As the name suggests, the structure serves as a “frame” for downtown and Old Dubai. It consists of two towers – 150 metres high – connected at the top by a 93-metre bridge. Extravagantly covered in gold cladding, the Dubai Frame showcases fantastic views of the city.

Moreover, advanced 3D technology and holograms will be used to feature the past, present, and future of the city. Here is a sneak preview of the Frame through a video shared by Dubai Municipality:
