Hans's insight:

Based on well conducted research there shuould be a large set of requirements describing what the users want to find on a website. And this is a good starting point, but before the content is arranged so people can consume it, it has no value. Consequently I think a good layout is a key aspect of good accessibility.

I think architecture and interaction must be balanced according to the Web site's content and functionality in order to be usable. This article presents a few inspiring examples.
