Not to be completely outdone by a Qatari counterpart, one super-wealthy resident of Dubai is planning to construct a 91,000-square-foot megamansion. Designed by South Africa-based Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects, the sprawling compound occupies an end lot on the emirate's famous Palm Island, with views to the city skyline, a private beach, towering walls of sliding glass, and indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The dramatic interiors, conceived by fellow South African firm Antoni Associates, include an open atrium with two-story waterfall.
