University Technology Industrial Park as an independent economic entity, facing future unpredictable investment situation, its own spatial adaptability for different research enterprises on architectural space requirements is the key to sustainable development of the park. The planning and design of Southwest University of Science, considering the actual terrain of the base, adopting the modulus space, combining with the design modes of the network group and the courtyard group, the 8m×8m grid is superimposed in the base and the building module layout. In the planning structure, the design from the perspective of spatial flexibility, though the wrong and deformation techniques, and ultimately the formation of a unified style and rich form of architectural space. After the modularization of the building, the regular column network not only has a good economy, but also according to their own needs, flexible division of indoor space for settling scientific research units and enterprises. The spatial pattern created by the planning and design has good flexibility, successfully solved the problem of spatial flexibility, and solved the layout of the various functional zoning of the park. Additionally, adapting the layout of the different investment subjects lays the functional foundation for the smooth investment.
