Born in Jarosław, Poland (1900-1984), immigrated to Israel in 1920.
At first he lived in Kibbutz Gan Shmuel and was one of the planners of the kibbutz and its dining room. Later, when his talent in architecture became apparent, he traveled in 1926 to study architecture at the Bauhaus School in Dessau, Germany.
Sharon returned to Israel in 1931 and designed many public buildings: Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva, Amal cinema in Kfar Saba and more.
In the first years after the establishment of the State of Israel, he planned a master plan for the State of Israel (Sharon Plan).
