The Wauxhall Institute

 

Description

The Wauxhall Institue has been  Cognite's largest, most well-known, and most public research facility since well before the Fall. It is rumoured that some of the research that eventually became the TITANs was performed here, and the dramatic failure that was the Lost Generation also calls Wauxhall home.

To the public, the Wauxhall Institute is an academic instution and research facility largely focused on advancing transhumanism.

Wauxhall's defense consists largely of Direct Action mercenaries, and the Institute houses a number of other major Hypercorp offices within its walls including Skinaesthesia, Experia, Comet Express, Exotech, Ecologene, and TerraGenesis.

The Wauxhall grew gradually over time and as such has architecture hailing from many styles, schools, and trends in a campus that covers a large swath of the Martian moon Phobos.
