"It was heady praise for a Southern California farm boy who had just opened his own architectural practice in San Francisco. One of the first homes 31-year-old John Funk designed - in Modesto no less [the Marvin L. Heckendorf House], and for his sister-in-law - was winning international attention. In 1942 the Museum of Modern Art in New York included his Heckendorf house in a trendsetting show - along with works by Modernist icons Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, Frank Lloyd Wright and Richard Neutra. Two years later Funk's work was shown in Stockholm."
