I had to travel all the way to Barcelona to discover that in 1977 Gordon Matta-Clark transformed a derelict building in Antwerp. If you visit the MACBA somewhere before the end of october, you’ll find two big rooms devoted to Office Baroque. And whilst you’re there, make sure to check out the Martin Parr exhibition at CCCB(right next door to the MACBA).

Flying Saucer (2010) by David De Beyter, from his Concrete Mirrors series:

This project is a photographic mockumentary. 
It deals with the representation of elsewhere through a selection of utopian architectures of the sixties: sites of scientific space research and a collection of landscapes which have received a sort of popular acceptance as Martian or lunar landscapes.

The gift-giving season might be over, but this books seems like the perfect present for people who love having quirky photobooks on their coffee table (or me, hint hint):

The award-winning project PLAYGROUND of photographer Jeroen Hofman portrays Dutch training grounds where the Fire Department, the Police and the Military are trained in realistic scenarios. In surrealistic ghost towns the emergency services try to prepare for what is factually unknowable: the future. Within the boundaries of this ‘playground’ the chaos seems controllable for a moment; even if only for the duration of the exercise. Hofman has now compiled these pictures taken the the last few years from atop a cherry picker into a book.
You can order it online via Jeroens’ website and if you’re still not convinced, you can view some more spreads on facebook.
