Thumbs up! Thanks for posting this. I think modernism/functionalism is very easy to relate to as an engineer – particularly anyone engaged in design. Although the world of an engineer is much more physics and organization and such (as opposed to something more artistic/aesthetic like furniture design) – there are still those fundamental elements of making a good problem statement and the obsession over the details of execution (something not really a part of pure science).
Reminds me a bit of the movie “Helvetica.” Worth a view if anyone out there hasn’t seen it.
