After it’s inspirational skyline and beautiful architecture, the desert city of Dubai is slated to receive yet another feather in its overflowing cap. The Guinness World Records on Friday has officially announced the Dubai Frame as the “world’s largest building in the shape of a frame.”
The architectural marvel which opened on January 1, 2018, stands at 150 meters tall by 96 meters wide. Thanks to its impressive structure, the building offers you unprecedented views of old and new Dubai – a treat for many. The structure is made up of 2,000 tonnes of steel, 2,900 meters of laminated glass and 15,000 square meters of gold-coloured stainless steel.
Bathed in a colour palette of ochre yellow, the Dubai Frame occupies prime real estate in the city’s Zabeel Park. While a visit to the landmark during daytime allows for some breath-taking views, the monument is beautifully illuminated after dusk.
“We’re proud to announce that we’ve hit a World Record for the World’s Largest Frame as per the Guinness World Record,” the Dubai Frame Twitter account announced, along with a video detailing the record.
