Paul Klint will retire to the position of emeritus at the UvA. Everybody is most welcome to attend his valedictory speech.

On April 16, 1850 a regiment of soldiers marched on a bridge across the river Maine near Angers, France. The bridge started to resonate on the rhythm of the footsteps and the bridge collapsed. On November 7, 1940 a bridge near Tacoma Narrows in the state of Washington collapsed due to a construction error. Many more examples of collapsing bridges exist. Are we witnessing a “bridge crisis”? Of course not, these are normal growing pains of evolving technology. Each error or accident is regrettable but leads eventually to insight and improvement.
