She produced a design for turning the former Freston Boot pub into a community facility for the Shotley peninsula.
She has called it the Freston Dementia Village.
Victoria said: “Before coming to UCS I worked in the health sector for 15 years. I would love to get the opportunity to design buildings for the health services which work better than some of those currently in use.”
Elsewhere in the building there were very varied displays, from graphic art and design, to fine art and computer game designs.
