Dubai Frame is the world’s largest picture frame. It measures 150 meters high and 93 meters wide. More than 9,900 cubic meters of reinforced concrete, 2,000 tons of steel, and 2,900 square meters of laminated glass were used to build this iconic structure.


The design was inspired by the golden ratio of 1.1618. Fernando Donis’s design was selected by the ThyssenKrupp Elevator Architecture Award as the winner for the pattern of Dubai Frame.
