Invented by Jacques Tits in the late 20th century, buildings found applications and play a central role in many fields of Mathematics and Physics. The conference ‘Building(s) in Aarhus’ is firstly dedicated to Jacques Tits who passed away in December 2021, leaving behind a tremendous legacy of research in group theory and geometry. At the same time, we aim to build new connections between the local researchers whose work relate in one way or another to buildings and the international leading experts in the field invited to the conference.
