    Albert Ledner Defends His White ElephantCan St. Vincent’s Medical Center’s O’Toole Building be saved? Moderinist mavens hope so, and many of them, in chunky art-director glasses, gathered in Chelsea last night to hear its architect, Albert Ledner, 83, defend it. Ledner designed two nautical-themed New York buildings for the National Maritime Union in the sixties; one is now the Maritime Hotel, with its slab of porthole windows looking down on meatpacking revelers, while the other, a levitating rectangle that flares at the top with two rows of stylized sea “waves,” has long since become the O’Toole Building. St. Vincent’s wants to build an energy-efficient, seventeen-story hospital on the site, and many Villagers are happy to see Ledner’s boxy, “wave”-bedecked rectangle go. (Its façades are “closed and forbidding,” says local activist Zac Winestine.) Ledner’s fans, however, want to preserve it.
