Two parallel high-rise constructions forming the basis for Dubai Frame, the project of a museum in the form of a frame, are already visible against the Dubai skyline.
The project will be completed in December, according to Dubai Municipality. Dubai Frame, or, to use the Arabic name of the project, Barwaz Dubai, will become an architectural dominant, connecting the past and the future of Dubai. This construction will have 153 meters in height and 93 meters in width, forming a huge framing for the view of the old and new Dubai from the both sides.
The ground floor of Dubai Frame will house a gallery, where the entire path of the modern Dubai development, including the period from the 60s of the 20th century, when the present-day city’s ‘golden age’ began, will be presented. And at the foot of Dubai Frame modern art works and installations will be exhibited and the variety of different events held on several grounds around it.
Through the Dubai Frame such iconic Dubai constructions as Emirates Towers and Burj Khalifa can be seen from on one side, and Deira, Umm Harare and Karama Dubai districts from the other.
The implementation of the Dubai Frame project is part of the Dubai government’s unified strategy, aimed at attracting up to 20 million tourists to the emirate each year by 2020. The project will cost US $ 43, 5 million.
