It was not, however, until the 1960s that Danish architects entered the world scene with their highly successful Functionalism.This, in turn, has evolved into more recent world-class masterpieces such as the Sydney Opera House and the Great Belt Bridge paving the way for a number of Danish designers to be rewarded for excellence both at home and abroad.The flat ceilings were replaced by high cross vaults, windows were enlarged with pointed arches, chapels and towers were added and the interiors were decorated with murals. Although most Gothic architecture in Denmark is to be found in churches and monasteries, there are examples in the secular field too.Red brick was the material of choice as can be seen in St. Glimmingehus (1499–1506), a rectangular castle in Scania, clearly presents Gothic features.It was during this period that, in a country with little access to stone, brick became the construction material of choice, not just for churches but also for fortifications and castles.
