Who Is Neri Oxman?

Who Is Neri Oxman?

The rumour has started again with regards to Brad Pitt's love life as the media take an interest in his newfound friendship with the stunning MIT professor and award-winning architect Neri Oxman.

The group conducts "research at the intersection of computational design, digital fabrication, materials science and synthetic biology, and applies that knowledge to design across disciplines, media, and scales-from the microscale to the building scale", according to Oxman's MIT biography. Pitt was referred to Oxman to work together on an architectural project he had been planning.

Fans shouldn't ship this relationship just yet, though, as the Page Six report also notes that Pitt and Oxman are only involved in a "professional friendship" at the moment. However, the source noted that the 54-year-old actor "is very interested in spending more time" with the American-Israeli architect, adding that "she is fascinating".

In addition to the incest charge, Steven and Katie were charged with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Police said they believe Steven Pladl then drove to CT to confront his daughter Katie and her adoptive father, Anthony Busco.

Neri Oxman is a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a pioneer in her field ("material ecology" - heard of it?).

She filed for divorce from Brad Pitt back in 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. She is very rigorous, taking on a long view on where design needs to be, but at the same time also has an incredible talent and aesthetic flare, like an artist.

Meanwhile, Pitt's Make It Right Foundation, which builds affordable houses for people in need with a focus on environmentally friendly sustainable development, has been working with global architects to build homes in locations including the Lower 9th Ward in New Orleans, which was devastated by Hurricane Katrina and Kansas City, Missouri.

Though he's known for his onscreen work, Pitt has a keen interest in architecture.
