Architects are challenged with the constantly-changing demands of businesses, such as restaurants and clubs, and the sky is the new limit for many companies. Over the past year, architects have seen a rise in demand for more rooftop venues as businesses take a unique approach to attracting new customers.

MDT-Tex, a large scale sunshade manufacturer, has been collaborating with more designers over the past 20 years to meet the growing number of requests from companies that are looking to establish venues on rooftops. Restaurants and clubs are beginning to move up to attract a posh group of customers who are looking for a new, modern scene.

"Today's restaurant and bar patrons seek out venues with aesthetic appeal and as such the establishment becomes a preferred destination, driving sustainable revenue and profits," says Joel Linton, MDT-Tex vice president of business development. "Our customers, include hotel and restaurant designers, architects, along with chain hotel executives and independent owners."

Employment of architects is predicted to increase by 16 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Individuals who take a more modern approach to structural design may see a higher demand for business.
