A collection of infographic posters, gathering and presenting data on the industrial quarter of Manaus in the Brazilian Amazon and urban development of Lanzhou, China.

The first set of posters focuses on imports, exports and industry in Manaus. Using data from a variety of sources, they present the bizarre reality that many recognisable branded goods, such as Harley Davidson and Coke, are being manufactured in the heart of the Amazon before being sold throughout Brazil and South America, due to Manaus' free trade zone status. 

The second set looks at the urban development of Lanzhou in China, where due to geographical constraints on city growth and property speculation, an entire new city called New Lanzhou has been built in 4 years in the Gobi Desert.
