Title: A Construction of Lattices in Buildings

Abstract: In this talk, we give an introduction to buildings, which are highly symmetrical combinatorial and geometric mathematical structures with a wide range of applications. We also describe a new way of constructing the quotients of buildings, from which we obtain lattice subgroups of the automorphism groups of buildings.
