Town & Country (Philippines) - - MASTERS OF DESIGN - KING SAL­MAN BIN AB­DU­LAZIZ AL-SAUD

Saudi Ara­bia’s $97 bil­lion bud­get deficit didn’t de­ter the king from ex­pand­ing his va­ca­tion villa in tang­ier. Here are just a few of the fea­tures of the half-mile-long com­pound: 1,500 yards of sur­round­ing wall, med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties on the premises, a fleet of 100 mercedes sedans and Range Rovers to carry the royal en­tourage around town, a cir­cus tent, a palace, more than a dozen other build­ings, and three he­li­pads. in cer­tain quar­ters, max­i­mal­ism has never gone out of style.
