Abstract: We explicitly compute the quasiconvexification of the resulting integrand associated with the mean-square deviation of the gradient of the state with respect to a given target field, when the underlying optimal design problem in conductivity is reformulated as a purely variational problem. What is remarkable, more than the formula itself, is the fact that it can be shown to be the full quasiconvexification.

Additional Notes: I would like to acknowledge several stimulating conversations with R. Lipton concerning the type of optimal design problems considered here and to J. C. Bellido for carrying out various initial computations. I also appreciate the criticism of several referees which led to the improvement of several aspects of this note.
