This is a bit of a narrow view of things. Architecture is too complex to be covered by such blanket statements. Sometimes you have to design from the outside in, such as in an urban context where the building perimeter is a given and the only facade is is one of a series, or as in the case of a core and shell office building, where there is really no "in " to speak of. Leaving natural materials exposed is nice when the materials are good ones, but often they are more appropriately covered, for reasons of durability, cost, and context. The essence of the initial post would seem to be: don't do it if it's gratuitous, and to this I could agree.
