Tout dépend du contexte dans lequel tu emploies cette expression.

Selon les cas, "vu" peut être une préposition, un nom, un adjectif... Sa terminaison va alors varier.

Par exemple :

La tour semble immense vue de l'extérieur.


Le discours de ce président semble assez vide vu de l'extérieur.

  1. Vu is a past participle meaning "seen".
    Vue is vu when it agrees with a feminine noun.

So compare these two phrases where vu(e) is the past participle:

Le château vu de l'extérieur
The castle seen from outside.

La maison vue de l'extérieur
The house seen from outside.

  1. Vue is also a noun meaning "view".

Voici la vue de l'extérieur
Look at the view from outside.
