Abstract: Here I describe the spiritual sect “Vale do Amanhecer” founded in 1959 north east of Brasilia, the capital of Brasil. I contrast the technological and romantic aspects of Vale do Amanhecer with the techno-scientific fantasy architectural space of Brasilia itself, and examine the way in which one form of romance with technology (Kubitscheck’s Brasilia) is complemented (and, we could say, incites) another, the spiritual sect barely 20 kilometres away.
