"Sharon's architecture involved not only destruction but also construction. The other major projects he undertook, besides the destruction of the camps, was an attempt to "pacify" the refugees by constructing and forcefully relocating a few thousand of them into Israeli-style social housing blocks next to major Palestinian cities". — Al Jazeera English

As "Daddy of the Settlement movement" his legacy has decisively shaped the built environment of today's Israel and Palestine. For more on his political legacy you can also read Jonathan Cook here.
