This list always needs the input of highly innovative structural engineers such as yourself.
It's so nice to hear from you again.
It's interesting when I read your responses this morning, because last Friday I was wanted to phone you and ask to see if you know some contractors specializing in "Tensile Membrane".

If strength for depth limit is an issue, try using a Parallam beam,
sand-blasting the surface to imitate weathering or hand-hewing (depending on
the look wanted, and on the intensity of the blast), and staining it a
weathered grey or other color as decided by the architect.
