My impressions of the Dubai Frame


In 2018, a landmark called the Frame Dubai opened. And even though I've been to Dubai a few times since then, this trip was the first time I was able to visit it.

What does this structure consist of? Two narrow skyscrapers of 150 meters, their space occupied by a staircase and an elevator shaft. At the highest point, a glass bridge has been constructed. That's the whole structure.

It looks very interesting from the outside.

One tower works on the rise, the other on the descent. The administration is monitoring the number of visitors at the top, so there is a limit on visits.

First you have to wait in line for the lift, then the same line for the descent. Incidentally, any resident of Moscow City will not find anything unusual in this.

The entrance is built in the form of a labyrinth; as you go, you can explore the history of the Emirates through small installations, as well as find out their plans or simply fantasies of development for the next 50 years.

A very captivating exhibition.

The frame is located between the old Deira district and the more modern Business Center. The idea is that on one side you can see the past and on the other, the present.

A Glimpse of the Past

A View of Modern Dubai

Along the entire balcony connecting the two towers, a transparent floor was built in the middle that could be walked on. I don't know why, but it didn't evoke any emotions.

Beneath the glass lies a space. And then there's another glass.

There was nothing to do there more than five minutes. Just to check the box that the place was visited. And that's it.

Like everything else there - a beautiful wrapper, and inside…

Where is it inside?

Well, this is a very categorical view. There are pros and cons everywhere. The question here is what you pay more attention to.
