I think it will be stunning at LaGuardia, and I applaud moving it out of Lincoln Center. Alice Tully Geffen Hall has always been the least inviting performance space at Lincoln Center, and perhaps new art could help counterbalance that building's staid, conservative, claustrophobic nature. I'd say the chandeliers at the Met complement that particular building (which is otherwise all curves and soft lines, held together by the Chagalls) in a way that this sculpture - a boxy creation hovering over a boxy space - just didn't do in its original building.

I'm also a huge fan of taking a work like this out of a rarefied space and sharing it with the masses using what should hopefully become a world-class domestic airport when the renovation is finished. Getting the AirTrain to New York's new living room and seeing this sculpture - I might actually start flying out of LaGuardia again.
