German artist Candida Höfer’s Palacio Nacional de Mafra VII (2006), showing the trophy room of a Portuguese palace, is one of 17 large-scale interior shots on display at the Carnegie Museum of Art’s Heinz Architectural Center in Pittsburgh. In You Are Here: Architecture and Experience, photographs by Höfer and etchings of housing towers in Romantic landscapes by French artist Cyprien Gaillard acknowledge that though we make our architecture, it also makes us. As part of this argument, a Gaillard film also reflects on the utopian aspirations of post-World War II high-rises and their dystopian realities. Through May 29. • cmoa.org
