Lets take say a new house construct and factor in the cost of an engineer. Now take the cost of an engineer and apply that cost to simply “overbuilding” or “overengineering”.
By building things a bit heavier you end up with consturcts that last much longer than you would normally expect with a “properly engineered” construct.
You could apply this to many things from roads to buildings to bicycles.
“Archtypes” is really the study of this overengineering and appropriate tech for the times.
