The economic downturn hurt a number of industries when it began in 2008, including architecture. As a result, a number of individuals in the field have been forced to seek opportunities abroad, but many are finding a surprising amount of work.

Architects in Colorado were originally suffering exponentially, the Denver Post reports. Employment in the field decreased 25 percent in 2009 from the year before, according to the Colorado branch of American Institute of Architects. Archiventure Group is one example of a firm that has begun searching for work elsewhere.

The company currently has 40 international projects, some of which are located in countries, such as Vietnam and Moscow. The turn of events has given architects more chances to travel and explore structures around the world.

Burkett Design is another Colorado firm that opened international locations in the Middle East. As a result, the company is being presented with new, unique opportunities.

Architecture jobs are expected to increase by 16 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. As more firms continue to open offices overseas, new jobs are bound to be created here and abroad.
