Church of Beatified Restituta, Jihomoravský kraj, Czechia

捷克萊斯納 教堂

Atelier Štěpán

It is the first church to be dedicated to beatified Marie Restituta who was born approximately 1 mile from its location. The church is located in the heart of the housing estate at the mouth of the Old scratch ravine. There are three basic masses on it – the church, the tower and the spiritual centre (designed by Zdeněk Bureš). The church has a circular floor plan. The circle is an age-long symbol of heaven and eternity (in contrast to the square, which refers to earth and transience). The heaven is reflected back in the colourful annular window that embraces the church just below the roof. It might be said that the circle is floating above Lesná or, on a figurative, transcendental level, that the heaven is floating above Lesná. The circle is also very close to the contemporary perception of liturgy in church that represents the community of the Apostles and Jesus around the table during the Last Supper.


該案件位於 Old scratch 峽谷口的住宅區中心,為第一座獻給 beatified Marie Restituta 的教堂,其出生在距此約一英里之處。該教堂有三個基本體塊:教堂、塔樓和精神中心(由 Zdeněk Bureš 設計)。教堂建有一個圓型平面,圓形是天堂和永恆的悠久象徵,與代表地球與短暫的方形相反。天堂倒映在五顏六色的環形窗戶,環繞著屋頂下方的教堂,如同圓圈漂浮在教堂所在地萊斯納的上方,或者用比喻、先驗的說法來理解:天堂漂浮在萊斯納上方。此圓圈代表了在最後晚餐中使徒與耶穌圍繞著桌子,十分接近當代對於教堂禮儀的觀念。

The tabernacle is located in a tall apse illuminated from above that is situated on the left side of the church. The church wall is torn by a triangular opening at this point, which serves as a reference to the tear in the Jerusalem temple curtain. The interior of the church forms an inner universe. It is an organ for communication with God. It is simple, composed, and collected. The visitor should feel safe, balanced, and undisturbed by the outside world, almost like in the mother’s womb. The soft and sleek lines of the structure form a disembodied inner space shaped by the light coming from the annular window above. Its purpose is to give indirect, soft daylight that does not cast hard shadows. The symbol of the covenant between God and His people – the rainbow – is depicted on this 80-meter-long window. A circular rainbow is a phenomenon that can actually be observed from high altitudes, often from planes. The light is turned into an element that hints on something beyond the limits of material reality, something barely perceivable with our senses.


禮拜堂位於教堂左側的高大後殿中。教堂的牆壁在此有個三角型開口,所參考的是耶路撒冷聖殿帷幔的裂痕。教堂的內部彷彿是一個宇宙、一個與神溝通的器官。此教堂單純而沉穩,如同母親的子宮使到訪者感到安全、平衡且不受外界干擾。建築結構中柔和圓滑的線條以及來自上方環形窗戶的光線形成了無形的內部空間,同時提供柔和的日光。 80 公尺長的窗戶上描繪了彩虹,這是上帝與其子民立約的象徵,而光則暗示著超越物質限制的事物。
