Aidan Walker

Job Role

UK Construction Week Conference Producer


Aidan’s MA in History from Cambridge University led to his ‘first career’ in furniture design and cabinetmaking, where he discovered his love of wood and his passion for craftsmanship, which he believes to be a crucial component of any happy life. The editorship of Woodworker magazine, then 20 years of editing and directing almost all the professional UK design magazines, led to his current work curating, presenting and chairing conference programmes such as those for The New York Times, UK Construction Week, Design Shanghai, Design China Beijing and Design Shenzhen. His meditation book ‘The Ecology of the Soul’ was published in 2016, and ‘Furniture in Architecture: Luke Hughes & Arts & Crafts in the Digital Age’ in 2021.

Aidan lives in rural Sussex with his family, his dog Reg, his Ducati racing motorbike and his guitars.
