Based on the research on urban complex and HOPSCA model and example studies, the paper tries to do a critical research on the development of suburb area by using HOPSCA model as tool, which is mainly about characteristics, advantages and the spatial organization and function organization. Those theoretical tools and example experiences are all applied into the design case in Yiwu for practice.
