Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's fifities socreal ('socialist-realist'), not seventies Plattenbau. The latter looks like your Høje Gladsaxe, only made of lower quality materials, larger concrete plates (c. 3m x 3m) and much more of these towers in one group.

On the other hand, I must note that I was once directed to the (now disappeared) homepage of an American family in Budapest, written for other expats, who lived in one of Budapest's Plattenbau buildings (one of the better) - and wrote that they liked the place, and wondered why Budapesters are of such low opinion of them! (They came from Chicago, I wonder if anyone can comment on downtown living space there.)

One whose delusions are out of fashion.
