sceening in a porch

I want to screen in a porch measuring 30 feet long, 13 feet wide and 10 feet tall. We get a huge amount of wind from severe thunderstorms, not to mention heavy rain. The heat can also be intense. (We live in Tucson). I would like to have the minimum amount of framing/posts so that the view is not spoiled.
Questions: 1) What is the maximum width per panel I can get away with and still have good structural integrity and longevity without repair? 2) What would be the maximum height for that width per panel? 3) Which screening material (e.g., coated aluminum, fiberglass, steel, copper, bronze) would hold up best, while providing maximum outward visibility? 4) What are the key construction/installation methods to ensure that structural integrity and longevity? 5) Which company/product/ installation system, if any, do you particularly recommend? 6) How about any particular brochures, manuals, magazine articles or books on this subject?

Thank you very much for any help.
