💡 The Dubai Frame is an architectural landmark in Zabeel Park, Dubai.
It holds the record for the most oversized frame in the world.
While described by The Guardian newspaper as “the biggest picture frame on the planet,” it is also controversial as the “biggest stolen building of all time.”
The project was conceived by Fernando Donis, and was chosen by the Government of Dubai as the winning design.
The designer has alleged that he had his intellectual property stolen and was denied credit for the design.
Dubai Frame Architecture competition:
The design was selected as the winner of the 2009 ThyssenKrupp Elevator International Award from 926 proposals.
Participants from all over the world were invited to submit an emblem to promote “the new face for Dubai”.
It is near the Star Gate of Zabeel Park and stands at 150.24 m and 95.53 m wide.
The ThyssenKrupp Elevator Architecture Award is an international architecture competition first held in 1988 and sponsored by one of the world’s leading elevator companies.
An international panel of judges selected the winning idea from 926 design proposals to create a Tall Emblem Structure for Dubai.
