DMCC, the world’s flagship Free Zone and Government of Dubai Authority on commodities trade and enterprise, has claimed a new Guinness World Records title for the world’s largest jigsaw puzzle by surface area.
In celebration of the Year of Zayed, the wooden jigsaw of over 12,000 pieces features the official logo of the national initiative and spans an area of over 6,000 sq m within DMCC’s much-anticipated Uptown Dubai district.
The jigsaw was unveiled during a ceremony attended by a select group of invitees who gathered to move the final pieces of the jigsaw into place.
In line with DMCC’s commitment to sustainability, all the pieces of the jigsaw will be recycled after the completion of the project, a process managed by Dubai Municipality.
The previous record for the world’s largest jigsaw puzzle according to the Guinness World Records is measured at 5,428.8 sq m (58,435.1 sq ft). This was devised by Great East Asia Surveyors & Consultants, and assembled at the former Kai Tak airport, Hong Kong on November 3, 2002.
