ARQUITECTONICA designed the mall.
If you noticed the colors of the mall are asian colors (red,yellow,blue are the primary colors of the flags of Asia) and the mall was a symbol of the Sy family's gratitude to the Filipino people's unceasing support to their malls. Being a catholic nation the Sy family also donated the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus right beside the mall.
Filipinos are happy-friendly people so it was best to make the mall ultra colorful! with fiesta colors. Even the soon to open malls were covered with colors. What you are seeing today is not yet the complete look of the mall. It will have an outdoor amusement area at the baywalk.

most A to Upper-C class stores will open in June.

none

I went to SM Mall of Asia yesterday and it was really big
and even though Mall of Asia was already open there are still many shops that are not yet opened. And I still saw cranes, construction machines near it because I happen to know that SM MOA was not completely finished.

IMHO putting an AMUSEMENT PARK in Mall of Asia will be pointless since an amusement park named "Star City" is very near.

those cranes might be for the convention center and the E-com center. these are not part of the mall, itself, but these are included the whole complex.
