1. Dubai - Madonna
Material Girl Madonna’s Dubai pad hit the news for all kinds of reasons – the fact that it was Madonna’s, the fact that it was in Dubai and the fact that her living room was an underground room with a view of dolphins. Celebrity architect Joaquin Torres, known to help celebs live large, designed this dolphinarium cum living room on an estate in the World Islands, complete with about 1,400 metres of private beach. The World Islands is one of the most ambitious of Dubai’s fancy projects; with a man made map of the world emerging out of the sea.
