For each integer n > 1, we construct an irreducible, smooth, complex projective variety M of dimension n, whose fundamental group has infinitely generated homology in degree n+1 and whose universal cover is a Stein manifold, homotopy equivalent to an infinite bouquet of n-dimensional spheres. This non-finiteness phenomenon is also reflected in the fact that the homotopy group pi_n(M), viewed as a module over Zpi_1(M), is free of infinite rank. As a result, we give a negative answer to a question of Kollár on the existence of quasi-projective classifying spaces (up to commensurability) for the fundamental groups of smooth projective varieties. To obtain our examples, we develop a complex analog of a method in geometric group theory due to Bestvina and Brady.
