Haven't heard that term since school.

So to answer your question, it's a very very important term, until it becomes very unimportant.

i guess if its an architectural space, yes. if its just a structure/ facility, no.

It's important for an architectural project, but not for a construction project.

I cannot think of a single circumstance where it is not important.  In fact, if you can successfully create a sense of place within your space, it might be considered successful.
