For the fourth act in GQ’s “The Performers” film series, Japanese architect Junya Ishigami dives into Cenotes, the mysterious subterranean pools in Yucatán, to show how the greatest architect—nature—inspires his own work.
 For Ishigami, nature, its disorder and unpredictability is the greatest architect. Exploring Cenotes, the deep water caves in the Mexico’s Yucatan jungle, the architect finds endless inspiration. His adventures are conveyed in his work: greenhouse style designs that are in high contrast with Tokyo’s hyper-modernism.
 
‘I don’t consider architecture as just a manmade environment; it should embrace nature,’ Ishigami says.
 
‘Every time I travel I look for inspiration for a new type of space’, he adds, diving into the crystal clear waters of the Cenotes, the world’s deepest underwater cave. 
‘For me’, he notes, ‘manmade things have the same meaning as natural things. Because human beings are also one with nature.’
