If you have a question about this talk, please contact David Craven. A spherical building is a special kind of simplicial complex with a large symmetry group. Spherical buildings were introduced by Jacques Tits; his original motivation was to study algebraic groups, but building theory is now a large and active branch of mathematics in its own right.
