He is the 2019 Guggenheim Fellow for Architecture, Planning, and Design.

In addition to his editorial role, Shepard makes films about the design, planning, and experience of cities and places. His film and video work has been screened at the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Ford Foundation, and the United Nations, among many other venues around the world.
