The Church of Blessed Mary Restituta in Brno is a Roman Catholic church in the Lesná housing estate, built in 2017–2020 according to the design of architect Marek Jan Štěpán. The church has a floor plan of a circle. Its upper part is surrounded by a large round colored window. A 31 meter tower made of concrete with a triangle floor plan is connected to the main circular part by an overhead bridge. On the rectangular plateau, which defines the sacred district, there are three basic forms - the church, the tower and the spiritual centre. The existing spiritual centre is rectangular, the tower is triangular, the church is circular - it forms three basic geometric shapes. The interior is shaped by light from the upper ring window encircling the church under the roof. The rainbow ring window is hidden behind a deep ledge, which thus obscures the light source. The sky retroactively reflects in the rainbow coloured window and it can be said that a circle floats over Lesná. With its 31 meters, it creates a dominant for the surrounding area, although it is not taller than the neighbouring houses.
