The Mexican-born architect is already known for his design of Dubai’s Porsche Design Towers, and the Dubai Renaissance Tower, but also the CCTV headquarters in Beijing together with OMA. Donis designed The Frame back in 2013 thinking about two 150 meters tall and 93 meters wide towers, connected by a 100 meter long bridge in between. The bridge, covered in glass, will host a coffee shop and a panoramic belveder, allowing a walk through the sky.
On the ground floor, a museum will display Dubai’s development from being a fishing village to the current metropolis. Indeed, the frame also works as a line between the new Dubai, its hotels and its skyscrapers on one side, and the old residential neighborhood on the other side.
