Naomi Campbell, supermodel girlfriend of Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin, certainly received a unique and special gift -- a holiday retreat in Barvikha, Russia. Not exactly a deal your everyday mortgage adviser could have arranged. Doronin hired Zaha Hadid Architects to design a residence resembling a space ship straight out of a science fiction movie. The 22 meter tall watch tower encloses private quarters with a view that imitates the feeling of sitting in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.
As if Dubai doesn't already have enough signature towers on its easily recognizable skyline. Hadid has another addition planned for Dubai -- the Signature Towers (note the capitalized S and T). This distinct trinity stands above the city and will host offices, hotels, residential complexes, and more. Just another construction project in Dubai, I suppose. I wonder if all the thousands of residents in Signature Towers can share the same home phone internet bundle.
