Maximal representations are an instance of the so-called higher Teichmüller theory: they form families of discrete subgroups of Sp(2n,R), a higher rank generalization of PSl(2,R), isomorphic to the fundamental group of a surface, that share many common features with holonomies of hyperbolizations. I will discuss joint work with Marc Burger, Alessandra Iozzi and Anne Parreau, in which we study actions on affine buildings arising as ultralimits of maximal representations and observe a clear distinction between phenomena already present in the boundary of the Teichmüller space and new flat features.
