Leslie Martin and Patrick Hodgkinson
Designed by Hodgkinson in the early 1960s in collaboration with Professor Sir Leslie Martin, then Cambridge Professor of Architecture, Harvey Court was completed in 1962 to provide accommodation for around 100 undergraduates. Mirroring the stepped design of another of his famous creations, the A-frame Brunswick Centre in Bloomsbury, London, it has won numerous design prizes. Notably, Harvey Court is a supreme example of the ‘Brutalist’ architectural style of the time, in which the materials of construction are exposed. The Grade II-listed building was named after the renowned seventeenth-century physician William Harvey, one of Caius’s most celebrated alumni.
