The term Danish Functionalism is sometimes used to describe the Danish branch of functionalistic architecture which had its heyday in the 1960s.

Danish Functionalists focused primarily on functionality at the expense of aesthetics and produced a number of buildings that are characterized by straight angles, flat roofs, and a kind of roughness provided by the minimally decorated concrete slabs that the buildings themselves are made of. Possibly the most well known example of the Danish Functionalist style is the University of Aarhus, which is the design of Architect C.F. Møller.
