Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Dubai's municipality announced last week that it would erect an icon to be called the 'frame'.
Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality, said: “We have opened tenders and will be giving the assignment to the apt contractor according to our plan.”
“We expect it will be a bridge between the past and future of Dubai and may become a name attached to Dubai like Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab,” he said.
The frame will be a large frame-like structure, similar to St. Louis' arc but square, that frames old Dubai through one end and new Dubai through the other. The ground floor will be home to a gallery of Dubai's history.
