Conceptualize, Schematics, Design Development and then Construction Documents. All 4 phases are needed. Dream all your ideas before you build. That is the process. Conceptual thinking is the first phase of any design process. Some architects do it, some don't. Those that can process will, and those that don't will most likely sell you something another has done which has nothing to do with any project specifically. Most Conceptual design is unbuildable because it is the dream and cartoon phase of the project...without details, and who was it that said that the essence of design is in the Details? The details and construction documents will come after all the thinking conceptually is finished on a project.
Is it relevant? Of course it is because its applicable, pertinent and related to the overall design process.
