Victoria is a qualified architect and part time tutor for BA year one at Manchester School of Architecture. Her interests lie within mixed use residential and socially led architecture; rethinking policy; and developing specific design principles for communities. She works for TADW Architects, based in Stockport, delivering residential and community schemes for Local Authorities, medium house builders and housing associations.
Victoria was in the very first cohort of students on the Summer school programme and since 2014 has been involved in PLACED Education as an ambassador, mentoring young people in a career in the built environment. In 2019, She graduated from Manchester School of Architecture with a distinction in the MArch. Her final design thesis, ‘Hair and Debate’, learns from non-western architectural languages and explores what a multipurpose Afro hair salon, within the heart of Manchester City Centre, could look like.
For the past 3 years, Victoria has represented students and associates as an elected national and northwest RIBA council member. She now sits on RIBA’s Education Validation panel and in this role continues her commitment to sharing skills and experience with other future architects, while championing diverse educational routes and careers.
