Dubai’s newest landmark forms a perfect snapshot of the city’s panoramic view with a 50-storey-high gold-plated picture frame. The Frame, which cost an estimated Dh160million (£35million) consists of two 150-metre high, 93-metre wide towers connected by a 100-square-meter bridge – all covered in gold plating.

From the bridge connecting the two towers, tourists can take snapshots of the city’s panoramic view, with ‘Old Dubai’ in the north and ‘New Dubai’ in the south.

Construction on the attraction started in 2013, and authorities are now installing the final details, like the gold stainless steel cladding.

According to a statement from the Dubai Municipality, The Frame will be ‘an important attraction point for tourist visitors and residents alike, and is expected to attract nearly 2 million tourists a year’. There will be interior spaces in the building that will act as exhibitions, including one telling the history of Old Dubai.

The exhibition will feature ‘mist effects, smells and motion’ that will tell the story of Dubai.

‘The Past Gallery embodies the idea of the project and tells the story of the evolution of the city and its past, and shows the old city using the most new and updated means of presentation that contributes to the creation of a favorable environment that develops & comprehends the renaissance taking place in Dubai,’ the statement says.

A Sky Deck exhibition will give tourists a chance to see the city from all views.

Interactive screens will help tourists point out buildings and landmarks and will give facts and information about each.

A mezzanine level will represent the ‘future of Dubai’, according to the statement.

‘The concept of this gallery is to depict Dubai 50 years from now into the future by creating a virtual metropolis through interactive projections and virtual reality technology,’ the statement says.

US rapper Juice Wrld has died at the age of 21, authorities say.

The musician’s death, first reported by celebrity news website TMZ, has been confirmed by medical authorities in Illinois.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said he died on Sunday. The cause of death is not yet known, the office said.

The rapper, real name Jarad Anthony Higgins, was best-known for his viral 2018 hit Lucid Dreams.

Higgins, according to TMZ, died after suffering a seizure at Chicago’s Midway airport Sunday morning.

Chicago police told the BBC a 21-year-old man suffered a medical emergency at around 02:00 (08:00 GMT) local time and was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police have launched an investigation into the death.

The rapper rose to fame in 2018, when hit singles All Girls Are the Same and Lucid Dreams, which peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, drew the attention of music fans and record labels.

In early 2018, he was signed by Interscope Records, landing a record deal reported to be worth more than $3m (£2.2m).

He topped the Billboard chart this year with his second album Death Race for Love.

In one of his songs, Juice Wrld rapped about the short lives of artists, saying “all the legends seem to die out”.

Tributes to the rapper have been pouring in on social media, with many writing “RIP Juice Wrld” to pay their respects.

In a tweet, British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding, who collaborated with Juice Wrld on her 2019 single Hate Me, described the rapper as “such a sweet soul” who had “so much further to go”.

Hip hop artist HaHa Davis wrote on Twitter: “Heartbroken @JuiceWorlddd I love you bro.”
